Senator GORTON - I have not the background to the question asked by Senator McClelland, but I shall certainly endeavour to obtain it. I should like to be a little clearer in my mind about what the honorable senator is asking. Did I understand him to say that the minute stated that maintenance work to be carried out by the Department of Works on behalf of all departments was so great that the money allocated had already been committed, or was he referring only to the PostmasterGeneral's Department?

Senator McClelland - I was referring to all maintenance work.

Senator GORTON - For all departments?

Senator McClelland - Yes.

Senator GORTON - I shall get the answer for the honorable senator and read it out to him here in the Senate as soon as 1 get it. I doubt whether the position is as lt has been represented to the honorable senator and as he has represented it to me.
